    What lens should I buy?

    Hey everyone...

    I have a D60 I mess around with and want to buy a better lens. I want a simple fixed length , and I am guessing I want it to be VR. I am not using it for moving objects or distance, just your typical pics...

    I have done a bit of reading but Ken Rockwell seems like an idiot so I thought I would try here!

    Thanks!

    A very popular option that is also affordable is a 50mm lens, in either 1.4 or 1.8 variation (1.8 is cheaper, but not as "good")

    That or the 35mm F1.8 if you want something a little bit wider, both very good for lowlight !
    The 50mm being a little better for portraits.

    mostly the price… but also, if you buy the 1.8, because you have a D60 there won't be any auto focus.

    if you want to be technical, the 1.4 lets more light in.

    Do NOT touch the 35mm 1.8
    P.O.S. lens. About as sharp as a stick of butter.
    Stay away!!

    50mm 1.8G if you want autofocus. You don't need to spend the extra for the 1.4 no matter how much better the lens is, from what I understand your goals-level-etc are (not saying this in a mean way)

    Great advice, I didn't realize the 1.4 would not have auto focus, I am just used to it and I find the auto focus lenses when used manually just feel like crap.

    The 1.8g it is! 50mm.

    It is what I thought I would go with but now confirmed.

    Thanks!

    I thought it was the other way around, auto focus on the 1.4 not the 1.8...

    For my d60
